Andros presents his progress on a work, commissioned by Les Subsistances, Lyon, based on a piece of music by American contemporary composer David Lang. It should maybe be noted that Andros never worked on dance from the perspective of music before. The assignment interested him because, after a lot of initial resistance, he wondered what could still be done with the rather conventional set up of dance and music, with live musicians and a set composition. Andros became curious to know if he could in fact develop concepts of movement which would be beyond or outside of the social and political concerns that tend to motivate his work. Is there still anything radical, formally speaking, to be done in ‘dance’?
